I have a 10” Delta Contractors. It has the stamped sheet metal wings which I would like to upgrade to cast iron.
Has anyone attached the Saw Stop cast iron wings to the Delta Saw? What were your considerations after the installation?
The overall 12” x27” SS wing size is appropriate. I know that the Delta has 3 bolts and the SawStop wing has 4 bolts. The center bolt hole in the Deltal table top is in the center of the 27” dimension. The saw stop wing has a web at the mid point of the casting precluding using the center bolt. It appears the holes in each, the table top and wing, have webs near the bolts probably for stiffening at the connections.
If I use only two bolts to attach the new wing to the existing table will that be sufficient? Will the wing sag over time because the mid span is not supported?
I have read the forum suggestions of purchasing unisaw wings on ebay. While these would fit I have yet to find any Unisaw wings that I would want to take a chance on. The ones I have seen look very well used (dinged) and I have no way of telling if they are flat or even damaged, and I don’t trust ebay.
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
